comment Why is godaddy HTTPS/SSL certification so much cheaper than digicert, thawte, and verisign?
@JamesRyan, How is it not? What does "a reference from me or a reference from Bill gates" mean? Does "Bill gates" mean "authority" here?

@user2428118, Guess we'll just have to rely on letsencrypt.org for now, though I'll prefer someone with a longer "track record" for stability sake.

@LieRyan, I mean what are some of the "CA pressures on Google's Chrome team"?

comment Are the different types of SSL certificates a bit of a scam?
@SSpoke, I will be surprised if there's no friction when you try to claim the "$1.5M USD" . These numbers are only for the big boys to claim, not the average user. Imagine they had a breach and had to payout 300k users, that totals to 450 billion. Rest assure that your users will not be able to get 1 million dollars each. Also see terms and conditions at positivessl.com/ssl-warranty.php

comment What are the benefits of a more expensive SSL certificate?
@JeffAtwood, Be careful of quoting CA websites regarding certs. The extreme conflict of interest is very real here. Vast numbers of CA sites have bad info regarding certs. It's better to rely on sources from independent security analysts/researchers/engineers. Also see webmasters.stackexchange.com/a/55855/7654

@user34262, Yea, money is a big factor in this entire (semi-corrupted) CA market. Related threads: 1) on webmasters.SE, 2) on security.SE , 3) on security.SE

DigiCert has an extreme conflict on interest alert (also see security.stackexchange.com/questions/13453/…). The support staff is twisting the question by comparing other CA's DV certs to their EV certs. But other CAs also offer EV certs at a much reduced price from theirs.

@citadelgrad, They have made a non-profit. It's called CaCert.org. webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/28595/…

Hmm, is Godaddy the only cert which they reject?
